PBS Kids announced the launch of play-along videos, online videos for preschoolers that combine video shorts with interactive game play. In each video, kids interact with characters to help them complete tasks, such as matching items of the correct size or finding the right words to complete a sentence.

Available on the PBS Kids website, play-along videos feature Dinosaur Train, Super Why and The Cat in the Hat. An additional Cat in the Hat video will launch early next year.

“We are always looking for ways to make media more engaging by exploring new technology that fosters fun and learning,” says Lesli Rotenberg, senior vice president of children’s media at PBS. “Initial research of our play-along videos has been promising, and we are excited about the learning potential for this technology that effectively integrates the power of video and interactive gaming.”
